Re: WristCheck - Stif's mobile watchbox app project - Now live on iOS and Android!

Congrats on going live with the Android build. Once the iOS version is live I'll be promoting it to some guys I talk watches with. Two more suggestions: I'd like to be able to organize my list of watches. Right now they are just listed in order that you have entered them into the database. I'd like ...

Re: Is the Sellita SW200 a good movement?

I’m my personal experience, the SW200-1 is an outstanding movement. When I think of “outstanding” I think of a few things: Accuracy Reliability Serviceability Ease of use Value for money Based on the above criteria, the Sellita (and its father, ETA) is just flat out better than the competition. The...

Re: Is the Sellita SW200 a good movement?

Alternatives at this price point are numerous but to name a few Rhonda 150, Powermatic 80, h31 and 21 hamiltons. All offer a better spec Cheaper but more reliable with no real issues except Swiss snobbery is myota 9039. All are in the sub £1000 watch category many a lot less. Dont get me wrong I lo...

Re: Balancing smartwatch and ‘watch watch’

I'm tempted to get a discreet Fitbit or similar to wear on my right wrist, as I do miss step tracking a little, it's a shame they don't do any 'not smart' ones anymore, as I'd be happy enough with a screen-less one, and I'll be disabling all notifications (except perhaps the 'you've turned into a p...

Re: WristCheck - Stif's mobile watchbox app project - Now live on iOS and Android!

So this definitely falls into the category of picking nits (which I think highlights how good the app already is): When I'm entering a new watch into the database I'd like to see automatic capitalization of the first word for brand and model. I don't know how hard this is to implement, but I've seen...

Re: WristCheck - Stif's mobile watchbox app project - Now live on iOS and Android!

Hi Grant, Just wanted to share a couple of more suggestions / wish list items with you: 1) I'd like to be able to "wear this watch today" from the main list of watches. I feel that having this function on the main list would be more valuable than the "add to favourites" button on...

Re: What I know today I didn't yesterday

Yesterday I found out about the what3words app and it's blown my mind. what3words is an interesting idea, but I've yet to see it used for any widespread real world application. I've mainly just seen it used for one-off things like sending someone your location. Well, today was the day. The live fee...

Re: WristCheck - Stif's mobile watchbox app project - Now live on iOS and Android!

Great work Grant. I've been using the Android version by simply adding each watch as I wear it. It seems to be working quite well. I can't see a way to submit feedback from within the Android version, so I will leave it here. Just a couple of minor appearance suggestions: - I'd like to be able to ha...

Re: Impulsive???

Great buy Lindsey. Love the bold colour!
Since we've been talking about NATO (and NATO adjacent) straps on another thread, I think this one would look great on a Perlon strap. Maybe a charcoal grey.

Re: Condolences

She was a force of nature, to be sure. Many who have no use of the monarchy still respected and liked the Queen, even though they did not like the institution. Such was her impact on people. Her legacy will be lasting. By sheer coincidence I am wearing my C5A today, and I cannot think of a finer wat...

Re: Holiday reading – inspiration, please!

Here’s another recommendation, Steve: Different Seasons by Stephen King. It’s not the typical Stephen King horror story. Instead, it’s a collection of four novellas more dramatic in nature. The movies Stand By Me and Shawshank Redemption are based on two of the stories. It’s the only Stephen King I...

Re: A celebration of NATOs

The best way to try a splash of colour without a big financial commitment is to order 5 from CNS. Inexpensive, and 20% discount when you buy 5. It's a great cheap way to add some colour to your collection. My next order will probably have at least one of the new ribbed straps and another single pass...

Re: What if?

The CW influence is clear when you look at Sequent. #tide straps and a sapphire dial option. Good looking watch and great technology that doesn't seem to have received the publicity it deserves.
